Vidalia onions in Glennville, Georgia ready to be harvested.

Like most vegetable and specialty crops, the Vidalia onion industry is not immune to the increased challenges of today.

Freight costs have spiked. Booking trucks to ship the product is an added obstacle. Desired pallets are almost non-existent for producers, according to Cliff Riner, crop production manager for G&R Farms in Glennville, Georgia.

Riner estimates that onion harvests should wrap up this week.
